High school HSE graduate comes onto rival territory for her first year at a school. English writing lab and instructional aid Jordan Waplington has her first year working at her rival school.
“I love it here,” Waplington said. “The English department made me feel very welcomed and like a part of the team.”
Waplington went to Purdue for her undergrad and got her master’s at Indiana State. Right now she is in a transition to teaching program.

“My goal is to be a teacher and a coach,” Waplington said.

By next year she will be able to teach. She is not sure what subject she will teach, but it is her hope to be in a high school classroom next year.

She has coached softball for four years at Heritage Christian; she also played all four years in high school and one in college.

She would like to become a coach here, but this spring she will not be able to. Shes really looking forward to a great year here and hopes she can have more while teaching.
